I thought it was a bit of a cop out to have Krell espousing selfish gain and turning to evil, rather than pushing his hard-line agenda for the sake of victory. I mean, the best villains are those that think they're actually doing good, like Ozymandias in Watchmen, or the Joker in Nolan's The Dark Knight.
I really thought Krell was going to be one of those rationalizing villains, where the audience must admit..."He's got a good point." But instead, we get Krell turning self-serving and just plain evil, instead of fancy, complicated, interesting evil.
Also, it was a bit of a let-down that the clones themselves give up on due process and procedure and decide to eliminate the general themselves after they had captured him. So, what does that teach kids? It's okay to break the rules, if the rules aren't working? Actually, if you think about it, civil disobedience IS about breaking the law to get the law changed, but that's a larger discussion.
